Paul Robinson has urged Tottenham defender Danny Rose to move to West Brom before the transfer window shuts next week.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the 42-times England international, is adamant that the 30-year-old would work well under his former Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce.
The Sun claim Allardyce is “desperate” to bring the experienced left-back to The Hawthorns to help the Baggies in the relegation fight.
Rose has been frozen out by Jose Mourinho at Spurs and has not made a single matchday squad this season.
When asked by Football Insider if a move to West Brom would be beneficial for all parties, Robinson said: “I think it would be a great move for him and for Sam Allardyce.

“Knowing Sam like I do, and knowing Danny Rose and the way he conducts himself, I think he is a player who would do very well under Sam.
“Sam is one of the most honest managers that I have worked for. Whether you want to hear what he has to say or not, he will tell you. I think Danny Rose would respect that. He would enjoy working under that kind of regime.
“There is a manager-player combination there that I think would work very well.
“Kieran Gibbs is there as well though so he could even play in a more offensive position, but to have his experience and character around the squad would be invaluable.”
